    A Dozen Reasons Why Nighttime Is the Right Time!

    Yeah, I fight it...because I have children and a husband.  But it keeps coming back, and I love it.   Night is Right because: It feels like the world is wrapped in velvet. It's quiet. The sun is not burning my skin. The best television is late...

    Always have been. Have had day jobs

    and yet stay up til only a couple hours to the next shift. If I try to get on a more normal schedule, it'll last for a couple days then right back to my up all night and most of the day schedule. I love it. I love the dark.

    I feel alive at night

    while in the day I feel like a very unhappy owl who is allergic to the sun.

    Whether it be cleaning,

    reading or any other activities I find It much easier to do at night, especially when I can't bring myself to do it during the day. The night brings me a great sense of peace and relaxation. But not the type to sleep through :p. (maybe except during the rain)

    I Wanted To Be A Nurse....

    Well I went to college to be a nurse. It was a huge dream and I really wanted it so much. I ended up becoming a CNA and taking care of the elderly which is very hard work but yet very rewarding. I spent 4yrs taking care of our moms/dads and grandparents. I formed many bonds...

    Oh the best trait, so far I've discovered.

    Always searching and connecting, learning things, information and people who would thought you would never see or hear about in the day time.

    It's already midnight

    but it doesn't seem to be. I did not notice until I looked at the time. My body clock is slowly changing. I'm really a night owl.

    I stay up till 2 am almost every night,

    especially now that it's summer. I like the dark night sky and the stars. I sit outside on my deck a lot and just look at the sky and listen to all the sounds. It's always so quiet and still at night. Also, my most productive time of the day is 11pm-2am. I don't know why but I...

    Status update: it is 2:48.

    The owl perches once again. It would not be a big deal if the owl didn't have class in the morning. The owl lays in a nest of strategically arranged blankets that sit precisely to her liking. She types away at her dying laptop Is it worth it to get up and get the charger...

    All my creative juices run at night.

    Then I fall asleep. If my ideas survive my first two cups of coffee in the morning, they stand a chance. Otherwise, to the basket of absurdity they go.

    for many years and I blame it on insomnia. I end up spending hours staying awake at night and having little sleep before getting up the next day. But I wouldn't change it. It's part of what makes me who I am and I enjoy being up when it's dark outside. Sometimes, I go out at...
